Several things should be noted about this strip.
- All of you who thought you knew which Roman period we were in… HA! Wrong! Totally got all anachronistic on you… it’s a comic strip about about an eight-year-old girl and three Imps sent to help her bring about the end of the world – you expected it to be historically accurate?*.
- Notwithstanding point #1 above. This is EXACTLY how the burning of Rome started.
- Yes, two Monty Python nods in consecutive strips.
- In light of point #2, don’t expect to see the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch anytime soon. That was a totally made up artifact and as such has no place in a reality-based universe such as Luci Phurr’s Imps.
If any of this made any sense at all, I strongly recommend you pop around to see your local doctor and get the dosage increased.
*The next time period is actually 100 percent accurate and completely factual. Honest!
